The Perfect Orchid
I wrote a few weeks ago about the cymbidium orchid outside the door at our SJC home. I almost forgot about this one that has resided outside the door in Laguna for almost thirteen years. It was given to me by a neighbor that was moving away and it has been thriving on neglect ever since. It occasionally will get a dose of organic fertilizer, the same as all the other plants and it gets watered once every week or two. Most of the year I forget it is even there until out of the blue come this exuberant display of flowers. It never gets diseases or bugs, never needs pruning nor does it shed. The perfect container plants!
